Slow Cooker DIY Chai – One More Time Iced…

chai

I want to be the little voice in your ear this morning that tells you to make some chai concentrate! I posted this recipe in the winter, but it’s just as good if not better in the summer. You may already have some in your fridge, but it’s my recipe and I somehow forgot that iced chai is […]

Slow Cooker Orange Coconut Oatmeal

It’s spring and my thoughts turn to green smoothies in the morning. I’m not giving up on oatmeal, but I probably won’t be posting a new oatmeal everyday for a awhile. I’m going to try and post a few of my smoothies over at Busy vegan in the neat future. I have experimented with a […]

You may be tired of hearing it – but I love spring! The flowers, picking greens and lettuce out of my tiny garden, even the fact that I enjoy being outside again are all great reasons. It’s also my birthday month, so I guess coming into the world with all these lovely smells didn’t hurt […]

Slow Cooker Chocolate Walnut Blondie Oatmeal

Cheryl loves walnuts and chocolate and wants me to make a batch of blondies or brownies. This is what I made for instead and she was actually happy with it! Make this into a brownie oatmeal by adding a few teaspoons of cocoa in the night before. Either way it’s bound to make a Friday […]

Slow Cooker Blueberry Lavender Rosewater Oatmeal

I had the best lavender latte the other day and it got me craving some lavender oatmeal. This oatmeal is over the top and adds rosewater and blueberries to complement the lavender flavor. If you hate the flavors of rose or lavender this probably isn’t the oatmeal for you. But if you like them you’ll be in […]

Slow Cooker Banana Hazelnut Torte Oatmeal

I love making oatmeal that remind me of  favorite desserts. This tastes like  a cake I had almost 20 years ago. (Or at least what it’s become in my mind.) The banana and chocolate go perfectly with the flavor of the hazelnuts.  This is a really simple oatmeal to throw together before you go to bed. You can […]

Slow Cooker Strawberry Orange Mint Oatmeal

I don’t know about where you are, but we can finally get local strawberries here in NC. I love them in everything from smoothies to salads and, of course, oatmeal. If you are using frozen or not-so-ripe strawberries you may need to add a little extra sweetener. But if you’re lucky they’ll be so sweet […]

Slow Cooker Hot Cross Bun Oatmeal

Happy Monday everyone! The weekend here was a little gloomy until yesterday afternoon when the sun finally came out. It was amazing! I’m hoping for a little more sun today to keep me perky. There has definitely been too many blah days the past week. This time Spring weather needs to come and stay! This […]

Slow Cooker Bourbon Pecan Pie Oatmeal

pecanPie

The good news is this oatmeal definitely tastes more like dessert than most. The bad news is that it’s higher in calories than most too. It’s a perfect end of the week reward. You can use 1/2 the topping to make it more in line with the calories on the other oatmeals. Brown rice syrup is kinda high in calories and […]

Slow Cooker Pineapple Upside-Down Cake Oatmeal

You know I can’t go too long without a cake flavored oatmeal for breakfast. This oatmeal can brighten up the most dreary day with a vanilla base flecked with pineapple and chopped cherries. I finally decided I’m going to  Eat Write Retreat in May and will hopefully learn some cool tips. I will definitely learn something about taking pictures, […]
